Attention: Please Note Change for 2015

Effective July 21, 2014, under the REAL ID Act of 2005, agencies, including NIST, can only accept a state-issued driver’s license or identification card for access to federal facilities if issued by states that are REAL ID-compliant or have an extension.

NIST currently accepts other forms of federally issued identification in lieu of a state-issued driver’s license, such as a valid passport, passport card, DOD Common Access Card (CAC), Veterans ID, Federal Agency HSPD-12 IDs, Military Dependents ID, Transportation Workers Identification Credential (TWIC), and TSA Trusted Traveler ID.

To learn more about the REAL ID Act and to determine if your state or territory is compliant, visit the Department of Homeland Security’s REAL ID Frequently Asked Questions web page at
